Daily News: Tasteful retreats.

The range of cafés and restaurants at Ambiente – from simple, uncomplicated cafés to the stylish Smoker’s Lounge – offer the ideal opportunity to discuss business matters or simply take time-out from the hustle and bustle of the fair. Spread over the extensive exhibition site are 20 restaurants and 67 café and snack bars, of which more than ten have been created specifically by professional designers for Ambiente 2015. One of our favourite spots to relax is the chilled “Lifespace Lounge” where Brooklyn-based artist and designer Jason Miller recreates the trendsetting style of New York. There are hotspots for a creative break in each hall, including the Café PopArt, artistically designed by Veit Streitenberger with an array of pop art motifs.

PS: The well organised Minimarkets are ideal for stocking up on essentials or for a quick chocolate fix.
